DNA test released in Minn. police brutality probe
Thursday, October 16, 2003

The DNA of two police officers accused of dumping a Native man in the freezing cold and urinating on him was not found on the clothing of the victim, The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The police department has had the results of the DNA test for months, a spokesperson said. But the results weren't released until yesterday, after someone asked about it.

The spokesperson said the results don't clear the officers because urine is not a good source of DNA. The police department is still investigating the late January incident because one of the officers is currently stationed in Iraq and has to return before the probe is completed.
